Our economy short blocks are just the ticket for that budget build! This economy short block is a direct replacement for 1993-1995 SVT Lightning 351W applications. Our remanufactured short blocks start as good cores that are dissassembled, then placed in state-of-the-art, environmentally safe burners, followed by steel shot blasting to clean. The blocks are magnifluxed, inspected for cracks, bored and precision honed to manufacturer's specifications. They are then fitted with new, .040"-.060" over cast aluminum pistons and cast rings*. 28-oz. cranks are precision ground to recommended specifications, and micro-polished. Short blocks do not include cam or timing chain. Each economy remanufactured shortblock includes a 90-day, 4,000 mile limited warranty**.
The cylinder bores are machined the minimum amount to bring them in to spec, between .040" & .060". All bores will be the same size. If a cylinder cannot be bored back to true, then a sleeve will be installed so that the block can still be serviceable.
* * * NOTE: Must Re-use original threaded oil filter bung.* * *
*Cast aluminum pistons and cast iron rings are recommended for naturally aspirated combinations only. Not recommended for superchargers, turbos, or nitrous. Always check piston-to-valve clearance when installing aftermarket performance heads or cams.
**Some conditions apply. This is a replacement warranty only. Labor and shipping costs not included in warranty. Installing incorrect parts, Overheating, abuse, or lack of regular maintenance may void warranty.
Had a problem with an order/quality issue. I put up a review stating so, and was contacted by Mike Linley, who was soooo nice and sooo professional, I almost felt bad about my review !! I felt the review was necessary because of bad welds/paint. Mike explained that they had a particular issue with that supplier and they had changed suppliers because of it. I must have mistakenly got an old set. (upper/lower Control arms-Foxbody). Mike asked a few questions, and was Sending me an updated replacement set while we were on the phone.!!! This is what I wish all Vendors would do; no arguments, no blame, no B.S. !! This is why LateModel stands out as an upstanding company, and backs up their products with AWESOME Customer service.
